    The board ID looks fine, it's the subsystem id which is different. It's not a major problem but when you will try to flash it will give you a subsystem missmatch error and you will have to use the force flash command in order to get things done. It's just to save you some hassle.

    I have tried once to change the signon text but it doesn;t make any difference, I would leave it alone.

    Ah ok, ill change the subsystem than..
    Btw.. is there any chance to change the card id to flash it to displaying gtx 285m or do i have to get my hands on a real 285m bios and flash that one on it?
    If it worked to flash 8800gtx -> 9800gt it should work for this since its the same card right?

    Might work, you would have to change the device ID from 060A to 060F.

    The latest D900F (1.05) bios should support it right?

    Im still running BIOS v1.03 on my 900F. Any noted changes/improvements on this new version compared to my older BIOS? Where can I download the latest 1.05 version? Thanks much! :)

    in theory, yes :)

    Well, as a matter of fact, even if you screw up you will still be able to blind flash your card back to life.

    I had to do it once... actually it was one of the first things I had to do when I got this laptop (second day after arrival) :D.

    Hello @ all
    and @ Blacky, can you please upload your OC VGA Bios?
    I have the same System, Clevo M570TU with GTX 280M GPU.
    Do you think it will work with my System?
